Aerospace: the growth challenge

The Aerospace sector is one of the very few industrial sectors to have experienced a steady growth during the last decade. In this very positive context, there are still challenges to address. In particular:

  • The whole sector needs to secure the continued ramp-up with a performant Supply Chain – considering all efficiency pockets as incremental throughput potential
  • Significant movements in the value chain (repositioning of incumbent and companies with a more recent shift towards Aerospace) lead to the question of the best strategic positioning
  • In this rather favorable period, some groups may have to restructure (at corporate level or at individual plant level) to reach sustainable profitability levels

A structuration movement is accompanying this growth movement, opening new opportunities to large corporates and investment funds. In this context, it is particularly important to identify and assess all M&A opportunities.
